. speaker. i appreciate you allowing me this time today. yesterday was tax day. and i've got taxes on my mind, mr. speaker. you know as most folks in this chamber do that h.r. 25, the fair tax, is the most widely co-sponsored, most widely supported fundamental tax reform legislation in the house and in the senate. both the house and the senate. 64 of our colleagues in the house, mr. speaker, have put their name on h.r. 25, the fair tax. eight of our senate colleagues have put their name on h.r. 25, the fair tax. the fair tax is a revolutionary proposal, mr. speaker, in that it takes all of the power of the tax code out of washington, d.c., and returns it to men and women back home. you know we can manipulate the behavior of anyone in america through the tax code. if i want folks to wear more pink ties and fewer blue tie, i'll subsidize pink ties for 250% and tax blue ties for 250% and we'll change behavior overnight. do you remember, mr. speaker, when we had the electric vehicle tax credit back in 2010? it was a $7,500 tax credit. we said we are going to give $7,500 to every american to

's winter of discontent, when britain had double-digit inflation, a top income tax rate of 83% and rising unemployment. and she revolutionized the economy with free-market ideas in her ten years of service that ushered in a new decade of prosperity. when she took office, the top income tax rate was 83%. it was cut to 60% and then to 40%. the middle tax rate was cut to 30%. and the lowest tax rate was eliminated altogether. when she took office, the top corporate tax rate was 53%. she cut it to 35%. the top capital gains tax rate was a stifling 75%. thatcher cut it to 30%. and as a result, a progrowth policies, unemployment fell from a high of 12% early in her tenure to 7.5% near the end. public spending as a percentage of g.d.p. fell from 45.1% of g.d.p. to 39.4% of g.d.p. and inflation fell from almost 22% in 1979 to a low rate of 2.4% in 1986. but perhaps the most telling tribute to margaret thatcher's leadership is that three days after she gave her britain await speech, that heroic speech she was dubbed "the iron lady" in the communist news outlet "the red star." when your military en

to buy more than 1,000 u.s. dollars worth of gold you have to provide your income tax number. india say major buyer of gold. it is discouraging unaccounted for money moving into gold. i think with regards to commodities, there's a lot of uncertainty about chinese economic growth. if you look at steel production, cement production, it's barely growing in china. residential construction starts last year were down 11%. so i think there's a fundamental issue with commodities. they probably moved lower. there are assets much more interesting than commodities. >> mark, if this is a situation where as you suspect this is someone got in trouble, what happens to prices from here. >> well, if we go back down again and we have a big increase in margin calls again and then money has to be raised in the equity markets to offset losses in gold, then you're going to go down somewhere under you're going to rely on the margin. and cme released yesterday. >> anybody who says that deflation is once again on the table may have nothing to do with that whatsoever. >> i think you're right. i think someone or

. obviously you know tax day may be a protest but if tax day and you were protesting the government you would want to hit a government facility. my leaning is that considering the person of interest who they picked up and not necessarily guilty i want to add is of foreign origin that this looks like it's leaning toward that direction. >> do you have a sense of how these bombs were coordinated? we're hearing that there were the number floats but there were multiple other unexploded devices that were found? two that we know exploded. you know this is just from a layman's perspective who probably watched too many movies in the past but are there timers involved and would timers tell you something different than something that could be activated with a cell phone? >> first of all every bomb has a signature and there are bomb experts that specialize in unraveling the signatures to determine who made the bomb. and so some of these bombs may already have revealed who their perpetrators were or who their manufacturers were in terms of the explosives or the timers they used or in the type of incendiar

the internet. and that's sort of a characteristic of a lot of the al-qaeda tax, where they really shoot for media amplification of these kinds of things. >> i guess what i'm asking, i know it's a difficult question, as probably unanswerable at this point. is it possible, in your judgment, from your experience, and your studies, that only one person did this? >> possible, but not so likely. >> mr. lighter, can you answer that one too? >> i'd say absolutely possible. >> absolutely possible. gentlemen, thank you very much. michael lighter, james forest, we appreciate it. and reminder to our viewers, we are monitoring the situation in boston. we'll break in with any significant break-in news throughout the program. but up next, we're going to switch gears a little bit. i say plunging gold is a good signal for the economy. just as it was in the '80s and the '90s. & there is no end of the world scenario out there. but my friend peter schiff disagrees. he's going to make his case ahead. don't forget, folks, free market capitalism always the best path to prosperity. i think that might include a

's that kind of symbol that a terrorist would look at. and also it's tax day. it's april 15th. and if it's a domestic type of terrorist that hates their government and wants to rebell against it, that's also a symbol as well. i think we'll follow the evidence the way law enforcement people do, being a former da, you only know what you know. and they're sorting those things out. i can tell you this, that the fusion center here where the federal law enforcement people work with the state law enforcement people and the local is one of the finest in the whole country. it's rated that way. and so there's though question in my mind that that group added with the assets of the entire country right now, that the president is calling on, will bring the person responsible to justice. there's that level of confidence right thousand. but it's hard to even go there when you're sitting there, that people that you know, and people that know other people have been injured thin this. three have already lost their lives. it's hard to get past that, but the professionals who are doing their are doing that

was as a member of congress one of the cheerleaders for less government, lower taxes. no tax cut would have helped us deal with this or will help us recover. this is very expensive. you have adequately described thousands and thousands of people, questioning people, checking things, providing the medical care. we're not asking people, look, do you have private health insurance or not, can you afford this or not? maybe the government will have to pay for it. and this is an example of why we need -- if we want to be a civilized people, to put some of our resources into a common pool so we are able to deal with this, and to deal with it, you can't simply be responsive once it happens. there has to be in place experts. experts in detection, experts in public health. so on the hole, i would say this is a terrible day for our society, but a day when i hope people understand the centrality of having a government in place. in boston, a time like this, no one thinks about saving pennies, going forward, i hope people aren't going to think, oh, okay, you spent tens and millions of dollars, which is probably
